So, what exactly is a City Type? :?:

Or alternatively, what is NOT a "city type"?

I see the OP is from South Oz. Perhaps NOT a city type is someone who does not have a meaningful relationship with his first cousin? :mrgreen:

I always have a smile and hello for other cyclist, except during this period of the year. Tad sick of the constant poor cycling etiquette and dangerous punters! I am more inclined to take a hack saw to their frame than shot out a smile!! Shame really as this is when we should be extra friendly and showing the south Aussie cycling spirit!

The other week I got a flat coming down old freeway, normally as a female cyclist there is a constant flow of inquires if I'm ok and needing a hand. But in peak hour flow of cyclist on two bothered to ask, so seems I am not the only one sick of punters!!

Tasmania and South Australia fall into this category (not city type)

I have worked on all my bikes (road/ touring / MTB / old trasher shop bikes) for last ten years of riding, so I am more than able to fix a tube. What I meant was normally the majority of people inquire if you need a hand when stopped at the side of the road. Even when you are obviously are top of the repairs people inquire. It's a community spirit and caring gesture that make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside and it seems to disappear around this time of year.
